Basement

The Utility Room

We complete the basement in time for Christmas!
The work surfaces are clear for the 1st time since I installed them!

The Store/Games Room

The floor is painted..
Carpet & dart board on the wall (plus spotlight of course!)
Pool table and the Ikea shelving...
and finally the welcome mat!

From originally being a store room we would not wish to show visitors, this has become one of the most-used rooms in the house! You can have the music as loud as you like, your darts will not hurt anything - and spilling your red wine is even less of a problem than on the oak flooring upstairs! Interestingly, it is also unheated (as is all of the basement) but always warm enough to play darts etc in a tee-shirt - even in mid-winter!

Conclusion? Get a basement!
